Murphy: Public Service Can Never Be For Personal Gain Or Personal Vendettas

Newark — Phil Murphy, Democratic candidate for governor, today released the following statement:

“This legislative package being voted on tomorrow is about personal enrichment, punishing perceived enemies, and stifling a free press. It is about rolling back state ethics laws to allow Governor Christie to personally profit off his service, while creating yet another loophole that can easily be abused for others to follow suit. This is not about fixing our economy or any of the other pressing issues facing our state. This is not about good public policy.”
